Volunteering in Ghana

I felt very comfortable here and also felt very safe. The staffs were so wonderful and I will really miss them. I always felt like I was coming home when I walked inside and I loved all of the new food that I got to try. The staff was great. I felt like they became my friends. There was always food and water for us and the house was always kept clean. They were all ready to help out and show us surrounding areas. They are all very warm and loving people. I was assigned to Good Shepherd orphanage where I taught Form 1&2 in the junior high school. I enjoyed teaching them very much. However, I think they need to organize their volunteers a bit better. Teachers seemed to leave or stop teaching once volunteers were there. This defeats the purpose of having extra help. It was everything I expected. I was given a comfortable place to stay with a project. The project description was misleading but it worked out regardless.

Ashna Orphanage in Nepal

I know that some people believe that these reviews are written by staff, but I can assure you, this one is not. I'm 17 years old and I participated in Global Crossroad's Volunteer Abroad Program at Ashna Orphanage in Lamatar, Nepal. If you're in high school, I would definitely recommend going with a friend- because Nepal is unlike anything I'd ever experienced. The culture of Nepal is completely different, the language unintelligible, and the people friendly, but strange. Someone from home will help you process all that is new around you. The program itself was good- I believe it is the nature of the Nepali to not be as detailed as Westerners, so I knew very little about where I was going and where I was staying. The accommodations are by no stretch of the imagination a five-star hotel, but they are comfortable. I would definitely recommend bringing a sleeping bag and your own pillow, or a towel to cover their pillow. Though it is a volunteer program, expect to gain much more than you give. The Ashna family shares their food and home with you, expecting little in return. Just being with the kids and living the Nepali lifestyle is an experience. The setting is absolutely gorgeous, away from the chaos and pollution of Kathmandu. I would recommend bringing gifts for the kids, for they have little. You don't need to bring that much clothing, just make sure it is fairly conservative, so use that extra space in your suitcase for things like candy and chocolate, books, and games for the kids. I would definitely recommend the Ashna Orphanage experience- and the Global Crossroad staff knew what to do, so long as you asked. Ask questions, because they won't give you answers unless you delve deeper yourself.

Life reminiscing volunteering in Nepal orphanage

I volunteered in this program for 8 weeks and it was amazing and really worth it. I volunteered in orphanage and worked with the vulnerable children of Nepal. They were very sweet and friendly. and the host family was very welcoming and loving, infact it is one of the major reason for my trip to turn out so amazing and life changing. this program is really good if you are great with children and love them.

Amazing Experience in Orphanage Project in Kenya

I was stunned with the first glance of wild Kenya right after arriving there. My experience with the orphanage will be unforgettable moment of life. It was great sharing my experiences and skills with kids. Thanks Global Crossroad.
